This clip of Bat for Lashes on Italian TV may not contain the same weirdness factor as Antony’s recent performance on Dutch TV, but it’s certainly odd to hear an audience clapping along to “Daniel.” Dressed in zebra stripes, singer Natasha Khan delivers the song as some onscreen subtitles present a golden opportunity for viewers to do some Bat for Lashes karaoke.
Khan clearly finds the whole spectacle amusing, and the show resembles that much-missed British institution, Top of the Pops. Stay tuned at the end of the song, where Khan is given an earpiece, through which the questions of the Italian host are translated. Unfortunately, Khan’s answers are drowned out by a booming male Italian voice, who translates all her answers to wild applause from the studio audience.
